    God's Word Accomplishes
    For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.  Isaiah 55:10-11 Yesterday, I mentioned this passage before I read the Scripture for the sermon.  I said that there are times when if it
  2. Impossible?
    24 Jan, 2018
    For nothing will be impossible with God. Luke 1:37 A bush that is on fire but does not burn. A sea parts just in time to allow people to escape their enemies. Ladies way past the age of childbearing become pregnant. A sunken axehead floats to the top of the water. A virgin gives birth to a child. People are raised from the dead.

    I Can't Even Imagine
    Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21 When I was a child I was taught that using your imagination was a good thing.
